's not what they want. it's what the government forces them to buy. >> spokesman jay carney would not cloiz the door on possibility of cancellation letters coming for employees with coverage. he said that's up to employers. >> the growth rate in 2013 is less than one-third of the increases we saw a decade ago. so problem solved? no. problem significantly improved? yes. >> yet the national federation of independent business revealed a new survey of 921 small business owner who is say the opposite. 64% of small businesses say they're paying more for insurance premiums per employee than they did in 2012. this small business owner in seattle says she's gotten the cancellation notice. >> i thought i'd get a letter from my company that says my rates have gone up. it didn't occur i'd get the letter saying you're cancelled. >> in the nbc news poll suggests the president took a hit on the issue. as for the opinion on the new law, 6% say it's working well. 38% say it needs minor changes, 38% want major overhaul and 24% call for hit to be eliminated. as for other poll, 9% say it made them more confide
press secretary jay carney is getting grilled right now about obama care and the revelation that paper applications are processed in the same queue as people trying to enroll on the website. so here's a bit of that give and take. >> you said you can bypass the website and apply by phone or in person and it can be done in 25 minutes. but these memos say at the end of the day, we are all stuck in the same queue because they all have to go through the same portal. >> john, i get it, but the person who calls isn't the one who continues to wait after the paper application is filled. >> your mocking is entertaining, but the president said you can apply within 25 minutes, that was not true. >> wow. senior white house foreign affairs correspondent wendell goeler live at the white house. kind of firework-y. >> that's jonathan carl challenging carney on the president's advice to people who were having trouble with the healthcare.gov website. he advised them to go on the phone and give their information or give their information to someone in person. turns out as carl said, all the information ha
to determine how to carry those out. white house spokesman jay carney warned that critics of nsa surveillance should be careful what they wish for. >> we're one attack away from assessments about what went wrong in our intelligence capabilities and collections. the work that's being done here saves lives. >> reporter: whether listening in on the leaders of close allies such as german chancellor merkel saves lives, the white house didn't have an answer. though it confirmed it is reassessing such high level surveillance as part of its overall intelligence review. on the hill today, european lawmakers went head-to-head with congressional leaders on nsa spying. the head of the delegation told me their discussion was frank. >> you had a very stern message to deliver. >> i think we had a very robust and strong message when we came to congress today. this bill which has come through the allegations is something that's [ inaudible ]. they feel very uneasy. they don't know why it's happening, why our strongest ally is doing it. >> reporter: today, they had more to talk about regarding spain, where the
is a good thing and it's long overdue. [ applause ] my first guest has been asking questions of jay carney about the obama glitches. getting answers hasn't been easy. >> is she the quarterback for these mistakes. is the hss secretary responsible? is the president responsible? who is responsible? >> the president spoke clearly about he's unsatisfied. >> is he responsible? >> this is on us. that goes from the president on down. >> please welcome fox chief white house correspondent ed henry. it's great to have you. >> glad to be on. i feel like a pup tent in a tornado. i've never heard that. >> it doesn't end well. this website launch hasn't ended well. do you think that it's typical that it's always this c contentious? >> there's a different occupant of the oval office and a lot of people don't seem willing to challenge power. i did it at cnn with bush and i felt like i had a lot more people challenging. she thought i took president bush on just as hard as i take president obama on. it's not about me. i think it's about the press in general. we've got to all do our jobs. it's not about takin
. and the problem for the administration is, they can spin it and jay carney can refuse to give out the enrollment numbers and they can play games with the timing, but it doesn't matter. ultimately, the numbers are what they are. people are getting these notices. one of the other arguments that defenders of the law have been making lately, that if you get your insurance through your employer, you're really not affected by any of this. that's total and utter nonsense, as we just heard from her. but you hear this from everybody. we got a letter at the weekly standard telling us our premiums would be increasing. you talk to people across the country and they tell you their premiums will be increasing. this affects everybody. >> and it affected the politics here. listen to max baucus, democrat, talking about this rollout. >> i think it makes better sense. let's just see how much of this can be put together, how much humpty dumpty can be fixed in the next month. if it looks like humpty dumpty is not being put back better, maybe we should start thinking about delaying the penalties. it's not right to pe
that a switch was discussed as were many options but he says it was never considered seriously. jay carney says the president dismissed the idea out of hand. i know for a fact that president obama never considered this, never thought about it, never entertained it. the vice president has been a partner of his from the 2008 campaign on, an excellent governing partner and excellent campaign partner. so again, campaigns test everything but as the book itself says this was never considered by the president. >> obama's former senior adviser, david plouffe, also denies any serious intent. plouffe tweeted "never any, any consideration of vice president of hillary rodham clinton switch." >>> congress is ramping up its investigation into the terror attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, as you'll recall, four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya tide in that ferocious attack. and republicans critical of the white house response on the night of september 11th have demanded access to witnesses. well now they'll get their chance in just a couple of weeks, cia operatives who were on t
increase to be able to do it. >> reporter: white house press secretary jay carney, who is briefing now, says the affordable care act requirement that insurance plans cover things like maternity care and that they have no cap on lifetime expenses is what makes them more expensive. carney says many people will have better insurance or less cost and in some cases people whose cost goes up will receive government tax subsidies that actually reduce what they finally pay. gretchen? >> wendell, thanks so much for providing a lot of those answers for us. >>> speaking of the obama care website, now you see her, now you don't. the smiling young woman featured on obama care's website, guess what? she's gone now. scrubbed out in an apparent web do-over. in her place, the far less eye catching quartet of really brilliant icons. to sign up for obama care. the identity of the woman remains a big secret. hard to believe since most people in washington can never keep a secret. there's some speculation she was scrubbed from the site to keep her safe after she became the target of heated criticism of the
already had health insurance, you could keep your plan no matter what, spokesman jay carney acknowledged today that promise is not being kept. >> it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify. >> reporter: carney's admission came just hours after the president's long-time advisor david axelrod acknowledged on msnbc. >> the vast majority of people in this country are keeping their plans. >> reporter: which means others are not. even though the president said this when he was selling the law. >> if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what. >> reporter: republican senator ron johnson is now pushing legislation to grandfather as many consumers as possible into their current plans after reports of hundreds of thousands of people getting cancellation notices. among the 14 million people who'd buy their own coverage because they do not have employer-based insurance. while those mass cancellations raise doubts
and we're on the hook. jay carney took the podium. he also said the reason for all of this, the reason for six enrollees, is solely because of the website. here's carney. >> let me just tell you now, november 1st. we don't expect those numbers to be very high. we never did. they're going to be even lower because of the challenges we had with the website. >> that's interesting. then he says they never did know that because earlier in the week, the answer was the president had no idea that the website was not going to work. so they constantly try to have it both ways and that's annoying. i am surprised the experts seemed so surprised about consumer behavior. if you can't get on to the website you're not going to be able to shop around. that's not working. plus, when you go on, if you decide, juan, if you choose to lo look at the subsidies, you could get a generous subsidy, however, consumer behavior is one of, i don't want the hassle, i'm just going to sign up for medicaid. it might be a less generous subsidy, but that's what people do. once you get on medicaid, which is substandard, it
it was explained by jay carney. >> this universe you're talking about here is 5%. that's the whole individual insurance market, 5% of the upon -- of the population. >> that 5% represents 15 million people. the whole obamacare is to get 30 million. and that's the holy grail. secondly, is it just the individual market that is going to lose their policies? >> no. small business plans are being forced under the new regulations to pool their workers with a larger pool of other workers. if they buy in the states regulated by the states, their insurance can go up quite a bit. they can lose their plans. lots of companies are facing this now. >> dr. emanuel, it isn't just small business or the individuals. there are -- forgive me, sir -- there are big companies: time warner, i.b.m., sears, wal-mart, k-mart, wall green are all saying they're going to take their people off their insurance and put them in exchange. those are companies making decisions how they want to insure people -- >> because of the way obamacare works. >> let me finish. before obamacare those companies could drop coverage at any tim
% of individuals would not be able to keep their policies. yesterday white house press secretary jay carney tried to clarify the law and those past remarks from the president. >> what everybody said all along there will be changes brought about by the affordable care act to provide minimum standard of coverage. so it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and, therefore, do not qualify for the are affordable care act. >> lisa myers will be on "morning joe" at the top of the hour at 6:00 a.m. some news outside of d.c. to talk about. a federal judge blocked a key part of a texas law toughening access to abortions one day before the law was set to take effect. the judge threw out the portion that required doctors who perform the procedures to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals 30 miles or less away. critics say it would have forced 1/3 of the state's clinics to shut down. wendy davis filibustered the legislation over the sum per the bill ultimately passed and davis is now running for governor against attorney gener
. >>> in the meantime the white house admitted in the form of jay carney, it's true, some medical policies don't meet the affordable care act's minimum standard and so they don't qualify, you won't be able to keep them. think about that. the white house is now admitting that they have known for, as it turns out, since 2010, according to nbc news and the "wall street journal," they knew back then that there are many, in fact millions of americans who would lose their health insurance policies. and yet the president was out all the way from 2009 until recently saying this. >> we will keep this promise to the american people. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what. first, if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. this law will only make it more secure and more affordable. >> anyone frustrated yet? what was sold versus what's being told to the american people now
's credibility on the issue has taken a hit. jay carney says over time they hope to change the narrative because as more people get the benefits and see the positives, the think it's going to turn around. >> ed, administration officials insist 5% of americans will be in the middle of this. but the president promised all of us. 5% is a lot of millions of people, and republicans say they think it's higher. >> that's right. 5% basically, 14-15 million people. so that's negligent. -- significant. and the republicans quoting a story, if you go back to the federal register in june of 20 10. officials posted comments about the new law which had just been signed into law, that suggested it would not just be a hit to individual insurance plans but disruption of employer, based health plans and we may see people being dropped there. so that would change the narrative again negatively for the administration, because it would be a bigger personal of people, it would include people who have insurance through their employer, which the white house says you'll be fine if you're in that category. this report fro
, the president said they could keep their current plans. >> chris, thank you. speaking of all this, jay carney was just asked about this. the white house daily briefing happeni happening. we're going to tell you what he says the president means by folks keeping their insurance. what's the real deal? that's next. the day we rescued riley was a truly amazing day. he was a matted mess in a small cage. so that was our first task, was getting him to wellness. without angie's list, i don't know if we could have found all the services we needed for our riley. from contractors and doctors to dog sitters and landscapers, you can find it all on angie's list. we found riley at the shelter, and found everything he needed at angie's list. join today at angieslist.com and it feels like your lifeate revolves around your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira adalimumab. humira has been proven to work for adults who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom re
there was a protest. jay carney the president and susan rice claimed there was no evidence of an al qaeda connection, it was not preplanned it was a protest spawned by hateful video that went bad. my belief the fbi interviews two days after should be released to the congress so we can see if whether or not there was evidence that there was never a protest. >> is there another way to do th this? janet yellen leading the federal reserve arguably one of the most important positions leading in washington in the coming years ahead. >> absolutely, yes. >> is it fair to hold up one part of government in order to make a point on another? >> is it fair to tell the congress when you have a national security failure like this, we will not make available to you the people who survived the attack so you can make an independent inquiry, is it fair to withhold from the congress a separate branch of the government with oversight responsibilities, the basic evidence about what happened. i don't like holding up people, that's not in my nature. i've run out of ideas and i am not going to let this whole chapter close w
paraphernal parenthetically in a speech. now, today, jay carney, this is the most telling thing i've seen all year he said of the people losing their health insurance. the 5% currently purchased insurance on an individual market and that market has been like the wild west. it has been underregulated. in other words you're an outlaw if you're in that market. it's your fault you're losing your insurance. >> well, he's not saying it's your fault. he's saying we've now regulated the market. those people had no other choice but to go. they didn't get it from their employer. >> how does he know that? these are people freely bought insurance and he's saying you bought the wrong kind of insurance. maybe they like their insurance. >> i think what tucker has just established that it wasn't an unforced error but it was absolutely forced because they couldn't have got the 60 votes if they'd turned to the country and said by the way you cannot have what you have now because all the polls show, again, most americans had insurance and most were happy with it. >> the white house -- you referenced this, linda
points since earlier this month. jay carney was asked about it and here's what mr. carney had to say. >> everybody gets hurt when there's dysfunction in washington. i think it's accurate to say that the dynamic has proven worse for republicans because i think it became so starkly clear by the actions they took that they were responsible for what happened but everybody gets hurt. >> am i to understand that president obama's bad poll numbers are the republicans' fault, too? is that actually what he's saying? >> well -- >> because he doesn't think president obama is part of the dysfunction. >> i think he said that everybody is suffering at this point. but what i want to point out is what i think is the problem for democrats, and i can say this i think very objectively, that the problem that we're going to see these numbers falling because the dysfunction is going to be shorthanded. people are going to associate this dysfunction with a broken website. that's not a good situation for the president to have such a trivial label attached to what is such a more macro dysfunctional environment
. if it doesn't it's junk and will be trashed. >> jay carney said if you like your plan, but it is a crummy plan you can't keep your plan. that's what the president wanted -- everyone is making excuses. >> this was a lie barack obama and the democrats sold to the american people because they knew if they sold everyone the idea that they would lose their health insurance, it would be replaced by a plan that was double or triple it never would have passed. they lied because they knew if they told the truth it never would have happened. >> that's key. kirsten. >> the reason why we were sold this is for a lot of people in the obama administration and the democrats they believe the ends justifies the means. their means are good. they have good intentions and yes, we need a better health care system. you know me. i'm a conservative. we need insurance reform coupled with tort reform. we need major change and people are afraid. >> we have the free market. >> we have to sell this hard. >> senator, you have lived the life. >> let me tell you uh -- >> i have lived it. i have abused it as well. >> i don't k
it & it will be trashed. >> katie. jay carney actually said today if you like your plan but it's a crummy plan, you can't keep your plan. that's what the president -- everyone's making excuses. >> first of all, this idea that you're saying people's plans are crummy, it's very patronizing. second of all, this was a lie that barack obama and the democrats sold to the american people because they knew that if they sold everyone this idea, that they'll lose their health insurance that it would get replaced but a plan that was double or triple what they were paying then it would never have passed. they lied because if they were to tell the american people the truth that would have never happened. that's the bottom line. >> that's key. kirsten. >> the reason why we were sold this is because for a lot of people in the obama administration and the democrats they believed that the end justifies the means. so their means are good. they have good intentions. and yes, we need a better health care system in this country, hands down. and you know me, sean. i'm a conservative. i believe we need health care reform. we
authority there. >> jay carney was asked the question whether the president would consider an executive order barring lgbt workplace discrimination if the legislation was unable to be secured in the house and senate. apparently he did not directly answer that question. >> he leaves the door open in an interesting way. >> thanks, take care. >> coming up, new comments from attorney general eric holder about security in our nation's airports right in time for the holidays after friday's deadly shooting at lax. plus, questions over whether lax and other airports are secure enough. then a disturbing story that's been trending all weekend long. hard to believe but true, a pregnant woman was attacked while talking to her soldier husband overfacetime while he was deployed overseas. he watched this on face time. what police say led to this horrific crime and we'll have an update on her and the baby. >>> and join our conversation on twitter, at tamronhall and my team at newsnation. peace of mind is important when you're running a business. century link provides reliable it services like multi-lay
obvious. you talk to people around town and you hear complaints like that constantly. bill: jay carney said it is preposterous and inaccurate. what did you think of his reput ball. >> like most of the things jay carney says these days. insurance companies are out there talking to the customers to expand health care, play blah. when the white house puting a gag order on someone. it doesn't you have to be absolutely mute. it means you can't say things we don't want you to say. that is what the insurance companies are being forced to do. they're not allowed to say what is really going on. not allowed to give their own numbers what is happening. not allowed to defend themselves from this new campaign of demonization. bill: what would be your solution for them? the insurance companies could speak with one voice, could they not? >> i don't have a huge amount of sympathy for the insurance companies. they made this bed. they're lying in it. this is one. props with crony capitalism, when you get in bed with the government the government gets to call the shots. at the same time you know they est
to be lowering expectation. here's press secretary jay carney yesterday before the dismal numbers came out. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is, yes, because that was always going to be the case. martha: live from the white house with more on this, ed henry. it doesn't sound like the administration is on track to enroll its goal of seven million americans in obamacare this year, certainly. >> reporter: right. and what they're trying to do now, martha, is manage expectations. that's what jay carney was doing there. they're trying to compare it to mitt romney's situation oh so many years ago. in the early days people shopped around, talked to their spouse, and then they make a decision closer to january 1st. we'll see how all that pans out. but as you say, these early numbers are embarrassing. it's nothing short of embarrassing for the administration. day one, six people enrolled. and as you say, this is from the administration's own internal notes at the health and human services department. it was released by a republican critic, darrell issa, but he's getting info
spokesman jay carney said today. >> the history of mistrust between the united states and the islamic republic of iran is deep. it will not be erased overnight. what we are doing now is not truth. we are in serious substantive negotiations that have the possibility of stopping the advance of iran's nuclear program f. and gesht a long-term comprehensive solution. i've been to more demonstrations in iran than i can count. they're a good part theater as well as public opposition. i've been to them where people are small, laughing when they're taking part. that said, there is real optimism and skepticism. that's something that people like the president are very aware. they have to show results very quickly, much the way politicians here, the administration has to show results as well. they have to so the iranians willing to put real restrictions on the nuclear program. as that is happening, politicians in iran have to be aware of the public opposition, and you'll have some playing up. the white house was saying, hey, we're not paying attention to that, but the talks that are taking player
german report that the president actually knew merkel's phone was tapped. and white house spokesman jay carney said the u.s. is just keeping up with new technologies helping keep americans safe. >> if we're going to keep our citizens and our allies safe, we have to continue to stay ahead of these changes. that's what our intelligence community has been doing extraordinarily well. these capabilities are part of the reason we have been able to foil numerous terrorist plots and adapt to a post-9/11 security environment. >>> want to take the story straight to our chief washington correspondent, host of "the lead," jake tapper. you talked to dick cheney. we know cheney was at the center of setting up this post-9/11 spying apparatus. what did he tell you about this? >> well, he was obviously not eager to talk in detail about these programs. and if you look at the documents that edward snowden leaked to various media outlets, it indicates that the surveillance program, some of them started as far back as 2002. i did ask vice president cheney about it because obviously, it was the story of day.
media just happens to be shocked by it as well. >> sure. >> jay carney is like wrestling cats, as they say. they used to want to focus on ed henry. now you have every reporter putting up their hand and you can't say, well, fox, the people at fox. now he's got to play it straight and answer these questions. and the president's going to have trouble shaking his repeated statements about keeping their plan. because the people he wrote were grandfathered into the plan, you can't force an insurance company to continue to insure someone if their math doesn't add up. >> because they squeezed the language in there with obamacare, whereas before they say, you could keep your insurance. no one will have to get out of it. they have to keep you. well, no, there is language in there that says if they even change their co-pay to $5 more, they can drop you. >> they're out. >> that's what's happening. >> a total escape from responsibility here in terms of keeping those that are insured and we're going to maybe hear some answers from kathleen sebelius. who knows? those that are going to questi
enough to say that -- >> they haven't contested the numbers. jay carney came out on friday and presented these numbers. >> you're a web master. you're a master of many things. you're also a web master. you were on the daily call.com. fantastic political website. if i wanted to know, tucker, how many people visited your site between the 8:00 a.m. hour and 9:00 a.m. hour on sunday, can you tell me that? >> i can tell you how many people are on the site right now, where they live, probably some other information. it's really easy. anybody who knows anything about the web will tell you, this is the whole point. every data point is measurable. we know everything. so we don't know? untrue. >> more news this morning and you're going to sit at home today and watch some nfl football, you might not know what's been going on wind the scenes, specifically with the players union, the players association that handles sort of the emotional well being of the nfl players. of course, they've been dealing lately with all the concussion issues in the nfl. you think that would be top priority for them right
